SIBO – The right treatment strategy for small intestine malabsorption and irritable bowel syndrome

If bacteria colonize in the small intestine, which actually do not belong there, one speaks of a small intestine overgrowth or SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth).

In most cases, it involves bacterial strains that normally colonize the large intestine. Typical symptoms of SIBO are a bloated abdomen, painful flatulence and diarrhea.

Scientific studies assume that a large part of irritable bowel patients also have a defective colonization of the small intestine. The author is herself affected and presents a comprehensive handbook that provides everything worth knowing about SIBO.

Phoebe Lapine provides other sufferers with numerous tools for tracking down this condition and recognizing their individual symptoms.

It describes in a generally understandable way the function and structure of the gastrointestinal tract and explains how SIBO can be differentiated from other intestinal diseases.

In addition, the author clarifies the various causes and symptoms, informs about the possible diagnostic procedures and explains the
treatment options in orthodox medicine.

Holistic therapy options, such as a diet according to the FODMAP concept, can also effectively alleviate the symptoms.

The author offers in addition a 3-step “treatment roadmap” as well as practical, everyday life-suited purchase lists and menu suggestions.

In addition, Phoepe Lapine presents 90 indulgent recipes including numerous substitutions for each ingredient if
incompatibilities or allergies are present.

The practical, comprehensive handbook answers all questions on the subject of SIBO and shows ways to treat the disease effectively and yet enjoyably.
